A review of friction and wear studies of poly(ether ether ketone) (PEEK) blended with other polymers is presented. PEEK is a high performance thermoplastic now commonly employed in many engineering applications, but its tribological properties deteriorate in high temperature environments. One approach to improving the friction and wear properties of PEEK is to blend this plastic with appropriate polymers. In recent years, a number of investigations into the tribology of PEEK blended with poly(ether imide) (PEI), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) have been reported and these studies are discussed.
